On CAPS, 14% of the 186 members who have rated Glu Mobile believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those bears, fellow Fool Rich Duprey (TMFCop), succinctly summed up the underperform case for our community:

The "freemium" model it's pursuing isn't as easy as it looks. It's also burning through cash growing the business and has no lines of credit meaning dilutive stock offerings or expensive debt may be in its future.
